5:24 pm
thursday evening at the oracle. you have to admit, there are slim pickings with regards to new subjects. there is mike brown talking to steve kerr. andre iguodala and his sore knee. kd. and of course, subject 1a. that man. i will never get over that shot there. he has been absolutely sensational. you think he was good in game seven last year? this guy has taken it to a whole new level. he will be ready and the warriors have to be planning big time for him. what do you do? here is what they said? response to that question. >> you can't top lebron, he will score, you try to make it tough on him. he doesn't have an easy gain offensively. and, you know, maybe he will

5:26 pm
other guys. you can let him have his game. let him score 30 points but you don't want to get him out where he is scoring 45 points and distributing the ball and really feeling his shot. it is so important that the warriors win these first two games at oracle. get their confidence going. i can speak if experience, going back to cleveland, everybody talks about how loud it is at the oracle. that place back there is unbelievably difficult to succeed in. once the cavaliers get a roll, it is every bit as tough as it is to win right here in oakland. >> let's flip it around. the warriors have to stop lebron, but the cavaliers have to stop steph, kd, and klay thompson. >> and i think the warriors have slipped the two games so far with the cavaliers. they had like a nine point lead. a couple, three minutes left in the game. can they disappointingly let that get away. then in the next meeting they absolutely clobbered the
5:27 pm
cavaliers. the warriors have a lot of weapons, they have the talent to do it. they are not heavily favors but you hear crazy talk warrior fans. they will sweep them. they are undefeated. maybe get that thought out of your head. i'm thinking six games. if the warriors bring their a game as often as they have been so tenacious, wouldn't be any upset. >> this is the rematch everybody wants to see. >> the final five, scary to think, people are saying all right, three years in a row, if you look down the road a little bit, this could be going on, four, five years. what's to stop these guys from meeting again and again? >> it would be fun. >> everybody looks at distant third and fourth. whatever. >> compared to these two. >> thanks mark. >> all right. coming up, some bay area
